The Baltimore Colts had little to cheer about in 1953 when they compiled a 3-9 record. The 1954 season saw them finish with an identical record but they looked much better doing it. Not so much on the gridiron, but on the sidelines. In 1954, the Baltimore Colts changed the look of football when they introduced the league’s first cheerleading squad. NFL cheerleaders have since become a fixture at most games.
While the cheerleading outfits have grown a little smaller since 1954, the role of the cheerleader has grown. Modern day cheerleaders don’t just wave their pom-poms at home games, they also rally around their communities and make appearances at events such as fundraisers and conferences. Many NFL cheerleaders have also gone overseas to entertain troops. They dedicate a lot of their time to practicing their dance moves and staying in excellent shape.
Cheerleaders appear to lead glamorous lives but they do not make a lot of money. While they can generate millions of dollars in revenues for the NFL, most cheerleaders make less than $1,000 per year although some experienced and senior cheerleaders can make more. This is one reason most of them have full-time careers outside of football. These hot and talented women are still thrilled and honored to do what they do. The fans are also thrilled to see scores of beautiful women bouncing on the sidelines and entertaining the crowds.
There are seven teams in the NFL that still do not have cheerleading squads although these teams have unofficial squads. The Green Bay Packers, for example, use a collegiate squad to cheer at their home games.
It goes without saying that these women are very pleasant to look at. Here are the 15 hottest NFL cheerleaders in 2016.
15 Jessica B – Seahawks
14 Hannah L – Patriots
13 Taylor – Vikings
12 Kat – Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys have had their ups and downs as a franchise. One thing that has always been a constant is their iconic cheerleading squad which boasts some of the hottest cheerleaders to ever grace the sidelines. Kat is one such hot cheerleader. Surprisingly, the 30-year-old blonde just finished her rookie season with the club. She works in advertising and has a BA in Fine Arts from Chapman University but her dream has always been becoming a cheerleader for the Cowboys. Mission accomplished!
11 Stephanie A – Buccaneers
10 Javai – Redskins
9 Kristen – Cardinals
8 Jessica – Titans
7 Summer – Saints
6 Danielle – Cowboys
5 Gretchen – Seahawks
4 Melissa G – 49ers

1 Sarah L – Jets
The New York Jets seem set to embark on another year of mediocrity. The team might not be very exciting to watch but rookie cheerleader Sarah L is going to garner her share of attention as she joins the Flight Crew on the sidelines. The native of Danbury, CT is a fitness fanatic who loves to run. She is constantly trying to beat her fastest mile when she is on the treadmill. The beautiful dark-haired office manager is focusing on mastering the dance moves that are required by the Flight Crew and she knows that her hard work will pay off. Fans would love to see her display her talent for standing on her head.
